The Chemical Manufacturing industry creates products by reacting raw materials using chemical processes. Chemicals can be classified as either commodity chemicals or specialty chemicals. Commodity chemicals are produced continuously in bulk quantities, whereas specialty chemical manufacturers produce smaller quantities of more expensive chemicals on a batch basis.
At all stages in these manufacturing processes, from raw materials to final product testing, it is important to check that the process is running correctly. Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) can be widely used at various stages in the manufacturing process to ensure the quality of the final product.
